Introducing Virginie Mamadouh
Dr Virginie Mamadouh is Associate Professor in Political and Cultural Geography at the University of Amsterdam.
Her research interests include geopolitics and globalisation; transnationalism and ‘new media’; (transnational) migration and territorial identities; electoral geography and urban social movements.
As an appetizer, a key observation in “From the Material Turn to the Emergence of Algorithmic Geopolitics”:
“In the age of algorithm, when we hardly grasp the consequences of the algorithms we have created so far, AI presents a dangerous litmus test of geographical imaginations and geopolitical representations are encoded for machine use.”
